BAE Systems

The more we are able to fully embrace people from all backgrounds, the more sustainable we will be as a business and the more successful we will be in the long term. Our focus on inclusion helps us find and nurture the best people, engage with them and develop their skills.

Focusing on an inclusive workplace is at the heart of creating the right conditions for us to improve and enrich our business, help us to meet our ambitious business plans and most importantly allow the people within our organisation to thrive.  

Our three-pillared approach

People

Talent from all walks
of life

Wellbeing

Promoting heath by supporting balance 

Engagement

Difference and new ideas is part of our culture
We have an increasingly diverse global workforce who share fresh ideas, help us to challenge the status quo, inspire creativity and drive innovation. We employ a holistic view of diversity and inclusion - with focused efforts on ensuring inclusive practices across all areas of the business.
 
The pillars of our approach are People, Wellbeing and Engagement.  Through this we strive for two key themes to gauge our success: measureable impact and things that just feel right.  The result being the creation of a community where our employees feel as if they are valuable, contributing members, respected for their unique abilities, experiences and differences.  
Our organisation has a number of inclusive groups run by employees for employees. These Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) include communities for women in cyber security, gender balance, mental health, disability, LGBTQ+, race and ethnicity and more. We actively encourage and support the development of ERGs to foster a diverse and inclusive workforce.
